Obviously, things aren't perfect in Indy, but they certainly are better now than they were early on this season. The Colts sit in a somewhat unfamiliar position, that is second in the division to the surprisingly good Titans. The injury to Tom Brady seemingly opened the door for the Colts to waltz into not only the playoffs, but the Super Bowl. But, it's a slightly more difficult task. The league-leading Titans, Brett Favre-powered Jets, Big Ben's Steelers, and even the Patriots, led by Matt Cassel all stand in the way. Not to mention the long-shots, Buffalo, Miami, Baltimore, Chargers, and Broncos.
So, now on a 5 game winning streak at 8-4, with 4 games against a fairly nice schedule that does include a rematch with Tennessee, and a inside track to the Wild Card, what do you think the Colts' prospects for the rest of the season look like? Will they make or miss the playoffs? Flourish or flounder? Will the defense be good enough or fall short again? Can they overcome the injuries and age?
I think they have as good of a chance as anyone right now. The Titans can be beaten, Favre may be the best or worst player on the field any given day, and while the Pats can win in the regular season can they win in the playoffs?
The Giants look like they're the best team goin', but you never know when they're shoot themselves in the foot (or leg).
